There's more from Ironduke -- he has two Flash-based toys for Wing Commander fans to play around with... and they prove that he has the skills necessary to put together a neat fan project! The first is a size comparison tool, which lets you drag around various Wing Commander II ships to see how they look next to eachother. The second is more complex: he says "Two Ferrets engage three Sartha in open space in this simple test mission. Okay, so you can't really fight it out, but you can move the ships, rotate them, and even blow them up."

Electronic Arts is on the march, discovering yet another market for video games -- online sales to iPod users! They're entering the field with a few universally popular concepts -- Sudoku, Solitaire and the like... but, who knows, if the plan is a success we could see some kind of portable Wing Commander spinoff someday. Here's the official line:
Just in time for last-minute holiday gift giving, Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:ERTS) today announced the availability of two new games for the fifth generation iPod(R) -- EA(TM) Sudoku and Royal Solitaire -- two perfect stocking stuffers for anyone on your list. Beginning today, gamers on-the-go can download these two popular mobile games for play on fifth-generation iPods. All of EA's games for iPod are available for purchase through the iTunes(R) store and can be sent as a gift using the iTunes gifting feature (www.itunes.com).
You can read the full press release here. Here's our crack artist's impression of the possible future:
EA Sudoku and Royal Solitaire join EA's three other popular games which are already available for the fifth generation iPod -- Tetris(R), EA Mini Golf, and EA Mahjong -- which were made available on iTunes last September. With the launch of these two new brain-busting games, EA is the most prolific publisher of games for the fifth generation iPod.
